Eastern Wisdom based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
An excellent introduction to the fascinating subjects of meditation, Zen and Tao. There are three books by Alan Watts collected in this single volume. The first book, "What is Zen" draws on both zazen (sitting meditation) and how we can learn to live in teh present moment. It is only in the present that we can experience life directly, free of the clutter and needless thought and preconceptions. Watts suggest the ineffable by pointing towards a truly universal spiritual experience: those times when we transcend the self and feel at one with the universe. Also read "Open Your Mind" by Taro Gold. Excellent.
